Hello friends, I recently just got a job as a machinist for BNSF, the stipulation was that I had to move to Newton, Ks. So i eagerly said of course and started to pack; I put in my two weeks at my current position, promptly found a quaint little house to rent, tuned up my truck and said goodbye to my loved ones and family. Now I have been away from home for periods of time that were longer than a two week stent, around a month or so. But moving two thousand miles away for at the least over a year was almost troubling to me. I knew/Know not a soul in the state of Kansas, I would be utterly alone in my endeavor. But I made the move and I found I do love my new dwellings and my position at work is my dream job. But I have become home sick and long to be with my loved ones. Then it struck me, I remembered; my pipes, I have turn to them for comfort before and I shall turn to them now. So today I packed a bowl and sat outside in the shade and I felt as though I was home and my troubles seemed to diminish. That my friends is how my pipe saved me. How about yourself? I would like to inquire as to see if your pipes helps you and what your moment was or is. Cheers, Brandon R.
